How do I ship a car from one state to another?
You can transport a car from one state to another in several ways: use a tow dolly or trailer, hire a professional driver, drive it yourself, send it by train. However, the easiest, quickest, most convenient and affordable way is state to state auto transport.
How much does it cost to ship a car to another state?
The average cost for a state to state vehicle shipping company is $0.70 per mile for 1000-1500 miles. The cost to ship a car to another state depends on several factors such as distance, pick-up date, route, vehicle make and model, transport method, seasonality, vehicle condition, and available discounts.

The factors that impact the cost to transport a car
to another state include:
When you ship a car to another state, longer distances tend to cost more overall, but there is usually a discounted cost per mile.
If you can be flexible around the car pick-up date, you’re more likely to get a fair quote. Booking in advance will also secure the best possible price for shipping your car to another state.
This relates to the roads and highways the carrier will use when transporting a vehicle to another state. Increased congestion in highly populated areas could impact shipping costs. Other factors include adverse weather, road construction, and road conditions.
Vehicle (Make and Model)
You need to provide exact vehicle specifications when you transport a car from state to state. The carrier needs to know how much space is required. Longer, taller, and modified vehicles may cost more.
You will get a better shipping price to transport a vehicle from one state to another if your vehicle is running. Inoperable vehicles require a winch and other equipment, which add to the cost.
Open car transport is the industry standard and the cheapest way to send a car to another state. Enclosed auto transport provides extra protection as the transport trailer is surrounded on all sides. This increases the cost but gives you complete peace of mind if your car is unique, luxury, custom, antique, or classic.
The cost to transport a car from state to state varies considerably, depending on the time of year. Holidays, for example, can be an expensive time to ship a car to another state.
Discounts are available for certain customers who want to transport a car from state to state. These include members of the military (both active and retired), snowbirds, and students. Check with our shipping advisors whether you are eligible.
